Westminster eForum

Taming the wild web 2010 - building a safer cyberspace

October 2010

With a steady stream of horror stories in the press involving the exploitation of children and vulnerable individuals online, the seminar looked at latest thinking on what can be done to make the internet safer. Bringing together policy makers with industry experts, commentators and interest groups, the meeting examined the prospects for a 'Great British Firewall' (similar to that being erected in Australia and already up and running in China) protecting IP addresses in the UK from 'extreme' online content, the precedent set by the Digital Economy Act in blocking websites involved in illegal activity, and approaches to better educating the web-browsing population to understand and deal with the dark side of the internet.

Shortly after every Westminster eForum seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
